Interactive Displays

Humber College

I built this project for Humber College, as a centerpiece for their new Donor Hall. It was written in Windows 10 (UWP) and can run on all Win10 devices including a phone, tablet, or gigantic touch-screen.

The data is hosted remotely through an Azure cloud service, and can be updated through a custom CMS I developed. The azure cloud application utilizes modern Mobile App Services to manage security and forward requests to various data stores. OData endpoints can be used by any app, including IOS, Android, or Windows.

I built a custom CMS (Content Management System) to manage the donor-wall remotely, in Windows 10. It can handle multiple users at once, and allows the client to manage records, images, or videos.
